Currently I use filemaker developer 7. I am importing from 30 different databases, labeled database1.fp7, database2.fp7. I want to be able to select from a drop down list a number, and then be able to click import without typing in 30 slightly different file paths (I wouldnt mind doing it once, but at the moment I'm doing it a lot for different networks and different filepaths...) If you can do this in 8.5 please tell me and i'll upgrade...

FM8 introduced SCRIPT VARIABLES that can also be used in calculations. You can set the script variable to a filespec - so roughly speaking the answer is yes.

Try the freee evaluation download.

This looks like the answer, but i have a problem:

My filepath for import is set to:

filewin://rgs-guildford.co.uk/Shares/Teaching Resources/Modern Languages/audy/$Import

And I set $Import to be "export (" & database::ID & ").fp7", but I get the error message

Cannot find $Import

When Importing. For some reason it is not recognizing the variable...
